New Table

I'm a new forum member and thought I'd post a picture of my recently completed table for my large egg.  The top and bottom are constructed with IPE, the framing pressure treated wrapped in white board. The table measures 72" in length, 28" in depth and 36" in height.

  • Nice indeed.  Did you use a Kreg jig for the IPE boards?

    Yes, I used the Kreg jig for the top and bottom. IPE is very hard and you have to pre-drill all holes.

    This is Beautiful, So beautiful that I would love you to make me one however I need to ask the pro's here can we put our BGE on our decks! (A beautiful deck like this I might add) I am a semi newbie 2 years with my XL and over 30 years on a Weber and well over a thousand pounds of lump on the BGE but my rig is 10 feet from my house on a cement slab and I have to tell you I have seen sparks come out of the screened opening, there are times when the wind is blowing here in Michigan and I can get some sparks a flying. I know everyone wants to era on the side of caution but what is the Industry standard.

    I believe I know the answer but I would love a way to put my Egg on my deck and feel confident that my family is safe.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    IPE is also know as Brazilian ironwood. It's most commonly used as decking. I used it for this project for several reasons. First it has an "A" fire rating, it is very difficult to burn because it is so dense. I set a burning piece of lump directly on a scrap piece for about 20 minutes it barley marked it. Secondly as you can see it is gorgeous when lightly sanded and oiled. I used IPE oil for the finish. To keep the finish looking like this will require light sanding and oil annually.

    @1973C3 beautiful table.  Are the 4x4 corner posts in a sleeve?  I don't see joints on the whitewood wrap.  I love the clean lines you have going on this one.

    That is a beautiful table.  For the IPE did you use a deck jig like this one? 




    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Eggcellent tie-in with the design of your deck. And Ipe is a fantastic choice.

  • Fantastic design and and choice of materials.  May I ask what is the distance between the first and second levels?  I am in the process of building my table and comparing various designs to BGE's suggested measurement of 15 inches.  Many thanks.
